Everything you see is either handmade or refurbished by me in some way.

I have loved miniatures since my sister gave me a dollhouse kit for Christmas in the early 90's. It's an obsession that I will never give up. I started my shop because I have more than I can ever use and I love to share them with other miniature lovers.

I am always looking for something new to try. I love refurbishing old or worn pieces to give a new life, especially reupholstering sofas and chairs. I have a weakness for beautiful fabrics and love looking for unique patterns and colors. My favorite decorating scheme is French Country so you will see that some of my pieces will fit nicely into that décor. "Anything goes" with French Country so you can mix and match whatever you like and make it work.

If you have a piece of furniture or a piece of fabric that you absolutely love and want something reupholstered, please don't hesitate to request a custom order.

I hope you will enjoy looking through my shop and that you will find something that you absolutely cannot live without in your wonderful little world.

Thank you for visiting.

I ship to the United States, Australia, United Kingdom, Denmark and Canada. Most items will be shipped Priority or First Class. Larger items may be shipped UPS. I will ship your items within 3 business days after receiving cleared payment. Custom items will have specified shipping deadlines.

I am more than happy to combine shipping charges for multiple purchases and many of my items can be added to your largest item with no additional shipping charges.

Please be aware that I am not responsible for the Post Office's delivery to the wrong box or items that are stolen from your mailbox.

Refunds and Exchanges
If you feel the need to return an item, please contact me immediately upon receipt. I will work with you to resolve any issues as I strive to have 100% customer satisfaction. I want you to be happy with your purchase.

Return shipping charges are not refundable; and I do not accept returns on large items due to shipping costs, risk of damage, etc. I have shipped many larger items such as room boxes and have never had an unhappy customer.
Additional policies and FAQs
I LOVE custom orders. Maybe you are working on a special room box or setting and you need the perfect piece to set it off. Just send me a photo and maybe I can help. I love the challenge of duplicating life-sized items (within reason of course).

If you have a piece of furniture that you would like reupholstered, please contact me to make arrangements. Maybe you have a fabric that you absolutely love and are hesitant to try it out on your favorite sofa or chair. I take lots of care with matching fabric prints and always add piping if desired. Reupholstering is a time consuming process and takes a lot of patience; but the results are worth it, especially if it completely makes the room. Silks make an especially beautiful piece of furniture and there are a lot of gorgeous cotton fabrics available also.

I have made and sold several room boxes. If you would like a room box for a special occasion, just ask and maybe I could help you with it or make one for you. I have photos that I could send you of some that I have made. I have made A Christmas Story box (from the movie), several Christmas scenes, a nursery, potting sheds, a quarter scale hat shop, and 4 Alice in Wonderland boxes. They make such beautiful, personal gifts for special people in your life.
